The Community Media Archive gathers the diverse local programs created through community access - including hundreds of television channels on cable television systems serving a wide range of Public, Education and Government (PEG) purposes.

Thousands of community groups and over one million volunteer producers, directors, presenters and technical staff participate in PEG access production annually. These efforts result in more than 20,000 hours of new local programming each week!

Programs in this Collection are shared from Community Media Centers around the country.

If you're interested in finding out more about the Community Media Archive or contributing video to it, contact John Hauser

If you're looking for back issues of the Community Media Review, journal of the Alliance for Community Media and it's predecessor organization, the National Federation of Local Cable Providers, you'll find them here
